On this episode, we feature four songs from The Iowa Composers Forum, a group for Iowa's classical composers. Each song was picked by the director, Brooke Joyce. He chose four songs he felt represented the range of styles that our classical composers use. Brooke and I hope that you will enjoy this exploration into Iowa's classical music. If you do, then you might want to check out some of the shows that The Iowa Composers Forum puts on regularly.  The latest, Winter Festival of New Music ,...

But these should cheer up any holiday doldrums you may have. So Happy Holidays and enjoy! More IMSC posts related to the holidays:...

This is actually the second  show to feature metal music . And I have more than enough material and suggestions to do another show. And I'm okay with that. If other music sites willfully and thoughtlessly ignore a whole genre that has quite a big following, Iowa Music Showcase is ready to take up the slack. That being said, if anyone is thinking about it, I highly recommend you start up a Iowa metal/hard rock podcast. The listeners are there. The last metal show I did is still my most listened...

Cover Art by Todd Purse  This is Part 2. You can find Part 1 at iowamusicshowcase.blogspot.com/2015/06/episode-12-lipstick-homicide.html .  In part one, we covered Lipstick Homicide going from a high school band into a real, serious band. In part two, we see them begin to get some recognition. Go from a local band to one recognized and loved throughout the country, and even into Canada!  This episode mostly covers them, for the most part, in the years 2011 and 2012. This is when I started to...

Iowa has had a long and strong folk scene, from its earliest days as a territory, up to the 21st century with the likes of Greg Brown among others. Why does Iowa feel such a strong attraction to these laid-back musicians without the pounding and thumping of other aggressive genres? Is it because it reflects the laid-back, contemplative nature of the Iowan people? Heck! I don't know! I do know that we Iowans like our folk musicians and have them playing in all sorts of coffeehouses, meeting...

"Lipstick Homicide, this is your life!" Okay, most of you young'uns won't get that  joke . And this isn't about their life so much as their music career. But I just couldn't past the chance to say that! Seriously though, with Rachel leaving her hometown of Coralville for the bright lights of Minneapolis, it seem like a good time to look over the career of Lipstick Homicide. So similiar to the show  "This Is Your Life" , this episode features friends and collaborators of...

Strangely, for a state where farming plays such a central role, we really don't have a big country scene. It seems that if a musician wants to dig into that rural, pastural part of their music psyche, in this state, they usually turn to folk or Americana. But be as that may, a few souls still are ready to tread the country road. And in this episode, we featured 5 Iowa artists doing just that, ranging from alt country to modern country. For more information, click on the artist or song......

Sorry it's taken so long to get another podcast out. "Life is what happens when we're making other plans." Overtime, family gallbladder operation, and a graduation conspired against me. Something had to give, and it was the podcast. I'll try to get it back to every two weeks.  At a casual glance, one might not think much about Iowa's jazz scene. The fans and players are not nearly as numerous as, say the rock, alternative, or even the blues scene. But what it lacks in numbers, it...

This project is outgrowth of an University of Iowa couple, Kembrew "Roboprofessor" McLeod and Iowa Review managing editor Lynne Nugent, having a child and thinking they would no longer be able to rock. They turned out to be more capable than me and found a way to rock, as well as put together a children's music album  featuring Iowa City musicians of all stripes and children of Iowa City. You can read the whole story in the liner notes - ...

In Iowa, as elsewhere, the women are outnumbered easily by the men in the field of music. But Iowa female musicians still make themselves heard and make a name for themselves. In this episode, we highlight 6 of those women in the genres of rock and pop, although this state has plenty of talented female musicians in other genres!

Although Iowans may have more German than Irish ancestry, in music, the Irish and the rest of the Celts are way ahead! So for your St Patrick's Day enjoyment, I am proud to present Celtic music as only Iowans (and a few Nebraskans) can do it! And if you want to join the fun, you can take FREE bagpipe lessons from both The Omaha Scottish Pipes and Drums! -  http://www.omahapipesanddrums.com/ And if you want to just watch and listen, The Iowa Scottish Pipes and Drums keep a schedule of...

On this Valentine's Day weekend, we do a 180 from last time, and showcase some recent metal music from our fair state! Because what more's metal than the risk of getting your heart ripped to shreds! Yeah! And, yes, IMSC can jump from hip-hop to metal! That's the way we roll, folks! But seriously, Iowa metal, like Iowa hip-hop, is a thriving, if often neglected, scene! And, a surprise to some people, even Iowans, our metal scene is more than just Slipknot! All the tunes here were sent in when I...

This episode, we are spotlighting the hip-hop of Des Moines'  Media Fresh Entertainment . This young group of talented individuals opened up for the 2014 Gross Domestic Product and took the crowd by a storm. "While several local acts put on great shows, Media Fresh’s performance at Wooly’s blew me away. All members in at least one article of black clothing, looking uniform but not too matchy-matchy, this group of young rappers (some of whom are reportedly still in high school) brought...

For my second episode, I thought it only fair I feature a group of people I call my "Board of Trustees". These are four people who provided plenty of morale support and good practical advice when I was trying to put together a Christmas album (it never happened) and when I was getting this podcast started. So in return for their wonderful help and support, they get a big spotlight on one of my earliest episodes! All rights reserved by the composers and performers. Used by their kind...
